Theory Of A Deadman Want Nickelback Comparisons To Stop
Theory Of A Deadman, who are to release an expanded edition of current album Scars & Souvenirs, don’t want to be seen as a poor man’s Nickelback any more.
Talking exclusively to Classic Rock, frontman Tyler Connolly had this to say about those Nickelback comparisons:
“I guess the fact that in the early days we worked with (Nickelback mainman) Chad Kroeger led to us being seen as some sort of junior version of them. But after three albums that’s certainly changed in North America. Hopefully, we are now seen as a band in our own right.”
Connelly went on to give Classic Rock details on the new version of Scars & Souvenirs:
“This will feature previously unavailable studio recordings, live material and videos. The studio stuff comes from the sessions we did for the current album. We ended up working on 21 songs, so there were plenty left out of the final running order. I know, as a fan myself, that people always love to hear more than you give them on the original album.”
This deluxe version will be issued in America next month, with a UK release to follow.
The Canadians are about to start their first headlining tour of Britain. The dates are Oxford O2 Academy September 24, London Islington O2 Academy 25, Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms 26, Birmingham Academy II 28, Glasgow Garage 29, Manchester Academy II 30.
